The Horizon(TM) dairy family recently launched a new value-added addition, made with key natural ingredients to satisfy toddlers and meet the challenging needs of discerning moms.
Natural product purchases rose 12.5 percent in conventional stores last year, according to Natural Products Retailer. In order to reflect this growing demand, Horizon introduced Little Blends(TM), a great-tasting natural yogurt with both fruits and vegetables.
Little Blends' unique combination of organic whole milk yogurt, plus natural fruit and vegetable purees offer a more varied nutrition for babies and toddlers than traditional yogurt. Each 4-ounce cup packs a daily value of 20 percent calcium, 25 percent protein, omega-3 DHA and probiotics. Parents will love how Little Blends incorporates more nutrition and variety into their child's diet. This new product is just one example of how Horizon continues to deliver nutritious food options that support healthier kids and a healthier planet.
Little Blends is a natural yogurt, meaning it's produced without added growth hormones, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup.
"Kids have the most to gain from their parents having an understanding about products that are good for the family and that kids like," said Dr. Alan Greene, pediatrician and author of Raising Baby Green and Feeding Baby Green. "The choices you make today are opportunities that could give your kids a better chance for the best of health throughout their lives."
Available at grocery stores nationwide, Little Blends from Horizon are sold in three, never-before seen flavor combinations of Banana Sweet Potato, Strawberry Carrot and Apple Butternut Squash. A 4-pack retails at a suggested price of $3.49.
